Help transform NHS services in Wakefield by sharing your views


The local provider of NHS wellbeing, learning disability and mental health services is inviting people in Wakefield to a series of engagement events to continue work transforming the way it provides local care.

South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust wants local people to be involved – to give their views and to help plan future services.

The transformation events in Wakefield will be taking place on:

• Monday 25th November 2013 – Pontefract Town Hall, Bridge Street, Pontefract. WF8 1PG

• Wednesday 4th December 2013 – Elizabethan Exhibition Gallery, Brook Street, Wakefield. WF1 1QW

Events are free and open to anyone so come along with friends, family or colleagues. Events at all venues will take place 9.30am to 1pm – with lunch provided.

Steven Michael, Trust chief executive explains, “We aim to transform our services to make sure that when people need to access our services, they have the best experience they can and access to the latest treatments and technologies. Our plans have a recovery focus, with people retaining control over their own health and wellbeing. It’s essential we involve people who are important to us in influencing the planning of future services – and that means people in our local communities.”
